Oct. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- C.J., son of the 'King of Zydeco' Clifton Chenier, will perfom at Freedom Hall in Park Foest with the Red Hot Louisiana Band on Friday, November 2, 2012. The Boston Globe has called C.J. Chenier "the crown prince of Zydeco," and Living Blues magazine hails him as "the best living zydeco singer and accordionist." His musical style ranges from the traditional Zydeco of Clifton Chenier right on up to modern funk with healthy doses of blues, R&B, swamp pop and even country. C.J.'s total mastery of the accordion combined with his rich, satisfying voice are the driving forces behind this power-house Zydeco band.

C.J,‘s 1995 appearances on the Jon Stewart Show and CNN brought C.J.’s music to his widest audiences yet. But all this attention didn’t change his philosophy toward his music. “You go to a gig by a jazz band,” he says, “and everybody's sitting down, sipping drinks. You play zydeco and you see shoes flying off. You can’t come to my show and stay unhappy all night long. You’re going to break a smile and stomp your foot before too long. This is happy music, and it makes you dance.”

"The heir to the Zydeco throne, an unparalleled party starter" -- Billboard
"The best living Zydeco singer and accordionist" -- Living Blues
